Get South Park: The Stick of Truth on PC for just £3.75

This is one of the lowest prices we've seen for this one, although it is worth pointing out that this is for a physical copy that is redeemable via Steam. As we point out in our review, Obsidian Entertainment have managed to create an enjoyable and authentic South Park experience thanks to the involvement of Trey Parker and Matt Stone. With a combat system that is surprisingly deeper than it appears, it would seem that The Stick Of Truth has ended up being worth the wait - despite the hilarious censorship issues. Cheers to Buzz for the heads-up!

Assassin's Creed Syndicate on PS4 / Xbox One is once again just £22.99

Here's another chance to get hold of the Special Edition for £23 if you missed last week's offer. You'll get an hours worth of extra missions with the Special Edition, although that's a drop in the ocean considering how much else there is to do. We called Syndicate a return to form for the Assassin's Creed series in our review, thanks to its back-to-basics approach and the exceptional world building of its Victorian-era London. Plus, you know, you get to hit people with a sword cane whilst wearing a top hat. That right there is worth the price of admission. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!

Rocksmith 2014 Edition with Real Tone Cable on PS4 is just £35.99

Before even considering this deal, I should stress that without an Optical-Out audio solution there is a high probability that you will suffer latency issues with this one. If you have that kind of setup, or are just willing to risk it, this is the cheapest deal we've seen for Rocksmith 2014, beating the next best offer by a few pounds. It's a shame then, that other than latency problems this is a fantastic learning tool for improving guitar skills. Thanks to noxeon @ HUKD!

Fancy an Assassin's Creed Syndicate sword cane replica? Merchoid's new range has you covered

As we explained in our review last week, Assassin's Creed Syndicate was a return to form for the series. There was for a number of reasons, but one that I failed to mention in the review was because of how cool the weaponry was - especially the sword cane. We're no doubt cosplayers everywhere have been trying to make versions of them for their next convention, but thanks to the folks at Merchoid they've done all the hard work by producing some official replicas of both the sword can and the hidden blade gauntlet. It's all part of their officially licensed Assassin's Creed Syndicate range, which also includes male and female hoodies, and the surprising part is that they're actually not that expensive.

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate Review | Ubisoft’s redemption?

Much like with the series itself, to understand the present we must first look to the past. In this case, we need to briefly revisit the mess that was Assassin’s Creed: Unity. There were many flaws with that game, undoing anything of worth being able to shine, and the end result was the worst game in the series. The fact that Rogue – the last-gen effort – was more enjoyable just by sticking to a familiar formula proved that Ubisoft had a lot of thinking to do.

Thankfully, the lesson has sunk in and one year later we have a game that, while not perfect, rectifies many of its predecessor’s sins.

This time around, the player takes control of Jacob and Evie Frye – twin assassins whose aim is to liberate London from Templar control. Over the course of 9 sequences it’s up to the player to build up a gang to rival the oppressors, take back the city for the people, and stop the Templars from seizing a rumoured Piece of Eden. That’s of course on top of Jacob and Evie butting heads as siblings do over how to go about their objective, and it creates a rather interesting dynamic both in terms of the narrative and the gameplay.

Why you won't miss guns in Far Cry Primal

Why you won't miss guns in Far Cry Primal

Far Cry: Primal wants to shake things up. For once, we're seeing an established IP trying something far removed from why it became a success in the first place. The change to a Stone Age setting could be just what the series needs while it takes a break from modern times and guns. In fact, taking the guns away from Far Cry could allow the series' strengths to shine.

Even the way the game was revealed is new for the series. Gone are the E3 demos or year-long waits (or longer). Instead, after a rather dull live stream of a cave painting (which we ignored until it became something to actually talk about), Ubisoft just went ahead announced the game and showed it in action via a new trailer yesterday. The biggest surprise though, was that it will be coming in February next year, just four months from now.

Why you won't miss guns in Far Cry Primal

Development has clearly been going on for a while. Hell, at this stage, it's probably just being polished and checked over. We had a similar late 'reveal' for Fallout 4 and it's great to not have to wait for a year or longer to get our hands on a game. That being said, if every game followed this reveal/release model, games journos would have sod-all to write about most of the year.

Far Cry Primal unveiled with mammoth-filled trailer

After teasing the internet with images of cave paintings, Ubisoft have finally announced that Far Cry Primal is a thing, and will be with us early next year. Coming to PS4 and Xbox One on February 23rd 2016 (with the PC version arriving a month later) it appears to be a stand alone installment in the series and not an expansion like Blood Dragon was for Far Cry 3. The trailer gives us a look "the original fight for humanity’s survival with its innovative open-world sandbox gameplay, bringing together massive beasts, breathtaking environments, and unpredictable savage encounters."

It also highlights that Saber-toothed Tigers Cats will most likely be the new Honey Badgers ie. complete and utter deadly jerks.

Assassin's Creed: Syndicate story trailer (contains epic moustaches)

We're warming up to Assassin's Creed: Syndicate the more we see of it. Naturally, it's facing a lot of pressure after the poor showing of Unity, but we're sure Ubisoft is keen to get its flagship franchise back on track.

Today's new story trailer shows us the ruthless Templar characters who are running London in Syndicate. Fans of twirly gentleman's moustaches are in for a treat. There's zero mention of a modern-day storyline sitting alongside the London narrative, so we presume Ubi has ditched it, which they were in the process of doing with Unity. Take a look at our features below for our earliest impressions on the game.

Get the Tom Clancy back catalogue with the latest Humble Bundle

Here's a fantastic way to play through many of the great Tom Clancy titles from recent years by paying next to nothing (if you want.) The minimum spend appears to be around 70p at the time of writing, which will get you Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3 Gold, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon, and access to the Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege - Multiplayer Beta. Paying more than the average (currently £5.29) will also get you Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction Deluxe Edition, and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell.

If you're feeling like you want absolutely everything, spending £6.53 will add Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist, with more titles to be announced in the near future. There is of course a final tier - £49 for all the games previously mentioned, a Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege pre-order, a Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege t-shirt, and a coupon for 66% off up to any three Ubisoft titles in the Humble Store (although it excludes pre-orders).

One final note - all games need to be redeemed and played through uPlay. I'll let you decide if that's a bad or not-so-bad thing. Thanks to FantasyDeals @ HUKD!

Get Far Cry 4 Limited Edition on PC for £7.50

Here's a fantastic price for the Limited Edition of Far Cry 4. Yes, when you click through the listing looks like the standard edition, but it's been confirmed you'll get the Limited Edition with this digital purchase. Best of all, you'll be saving a tenner over the next best offer, which is quite the bargain. The Limited Edition comes with the Hurk's Redemption missions, which apparently provides an extra hour of gameplay and a harpoon gun. Despite not quite matching its predecessor, we felt that Far Cry 4 was a "gorgeous, systems-oriented playground that provides endless hours of entertainment. And exploding elephants."
